The Bookstart Bear visited South Elmsall Library as part of a district-wide tour to celebrate National Book Day.
Local children enjoyed a storytelling session and rhyme time with the bear.
They also received World Book Day tokens to pick up a choice of free book, including Fun with the Worst Witch by Jill Murphy or a Horrible Histories title.
World Book Day, which takes place today, is a worldwide celebration of books and reading. It is aimed at inspiring children to enjoy reading by providing them with a book of their own.
